Lenten Lands Summary


Lenten Lands by Douglas Gresham

C.S. Lewis - the brilliant writer, the academic, the Christian - is known worldwide for his contribution to thought and to literature. But the man himself has never been more fully revealed than in this memoir by his stepson. Douglas Gresham's mother, Joy Davidman, was to become the wife of C.S. Lewis. Here we learn the moving story of their relationship, seen through the child's eyes. With the growing boy we gain fresh insights into life at The Kilns, the Oxfordshire home which C.S. Lewis shared with his brother Warnie and his newly acquired family. Douglas records the ways and talks of the famous stepfather for whom he felt respect and ever increasing affection; he tells of the love which united "Jack" and his beloved mother, but tragedy was close at hand, for Joy was dying, and soon the boys, bereft of their mother, were to lose their new father as well. Here, movingly told, is the story of C.S. Lewis the husband and father - and of the young Douglas himslf, as he stepped out of the shadows of his parents' death and into maturity and happiness.
